You need to build up her trust of you by never laying a hand on her again. This is how most people who aren't dog-savvy train, by smacking them. It 'works' by stopping that one behavior while you're around, because he knows he's going to get hit. What is also does is make that dog trust you less, namely because a leader doesn't lash out and lose control like that for nothing - I.E you did it after she did something bad, so she REALLY had no idea what was wrong with you.
A lovely quote to keep in mind:
"Dog: Keep in mind I have big, strong teeth and claws, but I choose not to use them against you, even if you hurt me."
I'm not sure where I heard it, but it touched me.
Don't beat yourself up too much, even if you have been using very outdated 'training', heck, Cesar Milan does too, you're certainly not one of the worst owners. And you can fix this with her. I'm glad she showed you in a way you can understand how she feels when you do this.
